It’s all about the skirt!

Midi skirts are emerging as a popular trend for spring/summer 2012. This could be in part due to retro television shows like Mad men and Pan Am. It’s the absolute buy this season. From jersey to denim, cotton to chiffon, casual to tailored - there is a skirt for everyone. 

If you want to show some leg, but not too much, this below the knee length style might be just what you are looking for. Many styles are A-line or flared in shape. This can be a very flattering style for pear shape ladies!

Check out our fantastic mid skirt range on line.  There is a skirt for everyone!

Swanning Around

It’s not everyday that you see a giant swan peddallo meandering down the Leeds-Liverpool canal, but as part of Sports Relief, two Radio Leeds presenters, Katherine Hannah and Adam Pope, are pedalling the gruelling route which measures 127 miles.

Damart were so impressed by their fundraising efforts, we too wanted to support them and help raise as much money as possible. To help keep them warm, we donated some of our famous thermals when they stopped by the bottom of Five Rise Locks. 

We also held an internal ‘celebrity mash up’ competition, where our staff had to guess who was who in a collage of celebrity facial parts.

As if that wasn’t enough, Damart staff got a shock when Adam came in to our HQ to read the results of the celebrity mash up test over the tannoy!

Well done Adam and Katherine, we hope your legs aren’t too tired by the end of it all!

Trend Alert - Paisley

The Indian heritage print of swirling curling shapes is the new craze! Whether it’s a paisley print dress, a skirt or blouse, they all work!

It fits in nicely with this summer's Boho renaissance and has been included in collections by the likes of Matthew Williamson and Paul Smith. The Damart mini collection of paisley print has the best of both worlds, animal and paisley print!

Wear this skirt as a bandeau top, team with this season’s hot trend midi skirt. Or wear as a mini dress on the beach if you are confident enough to show off those golden pins!

My favourite is this button through dress,  wear it open with a cami or lace slip! Define your waist with this web exclusive studded belt.

Ps. We have the paisley print in a blouse version too, don’t forget to check it out on-line!

How to get the most out of the sales

How often have you  bought something just because it was bargain? More than likely it will sit in your wardrobe unworn for the foreseeable. We’ve all done it!  

There is nothing wrong with treating ourselves now and then (or frequently in my case). We work hard all year, we get a massive buzz when seeing something marked down….50% off! 

The midseason sales have just begun and there are some real bargains to be had! Here at Damart, we've just added more lines, plus you can save up to 60%, hooray! 

Follow our top tips to become a finely tuned bargain hunter!

If you haven’t bought a quilted jacket by now,  it’s time to get your hands on one.  They are here to stay! It’s lightly padded but warm, a perfect seasonal jacket. It’s tailored to fit with faux sheep skin trim to the collar.    For only £16, you’ve got yourself a fashion savvy piece.  Be fast ladies, we have very limited stock!

Do you love it?
We do! Extra long length, check! Empire line, check! Wrap front, check! Thinking of re-vamping your  wardrobe before the holiday season kicks in. Get to the front of the queue and bag yourself a bargain before they fly off  the shelf.
